their news is not worthy as well. >> you worked in law enforcement before starting this foundation. what obstacles did you face when investigating cases involving missing african-americans? >> we have had numerous cases come to our attention where law enforcement didn't take the place report, so that raises a huge challenge for us in helping these families with the news media coverage and the decision makers tell us our stories are not news worthy and we continue to pound the pavement and create partnerships with media, partnerships with law enforcement to help these families because at the end of the day it is not just the sole responsibility of law enforcement, it is law enforcement, the community, the media. >> i know we're talking people here. let's talk numbers here. how many people go missing in the united states every year and how many of them are african-americans? >> last year alone over 600,000 people were reported missing in the united states and 40% much those reported missing were persons of color. >> the media cove little ra, do they balance out with that? >> absolutely not
with adjudications of delinquency in juvenile law, it is similar to a finding of guilty in the adult court. >> reporter: fredricka, the judge made the final call. this was not a jury trial. because it was a juvenile case it was the judge that rendered this decision after it was made, the two convicted rapists were taken out of the courthouse here and they went immediately in to detention in a juvenile detention facility. >> the defendants did address the court and the victim's family, seemingly very apologet apologetic, very remorseful. did that in any way play a role in the type of sentencing that they received? >> reporter: no one will know for sure because the judge did give them a chance to stand up and address the court, which they did bef handed down his sentence. no one will know whether that changed his mind or not. he could have given them a longer sentence than he did but i want our viewers to get a moment to listen to these two boys as they apologized to the victim's family. >> i would like to apologize to you people. i had no intentions to do anything like that. i'm sorry to pu
plans to sign three new gun control laws tomorrow. here is a look at 13469 nsome o new legislation. keep in mind colorado home to two of the deadliest mass shootings in u.s. history. last year's aurora theater shooting and the massacre at columbine high school. >>> this is a crazy story. 13 pieces of art, $500 million, poof, gone in 81 seconds. you have these two men dressed as police, they target this boston museum here. get away with one of the biggest thefts in history. this is a crime that's gone unsolved 23 years. the fbi is revealing new information. we'll talk to the museum's security director next. >>> we're taking you back 23 years. yesterday one of the biggest art heights in american history this boston, 81 minutes, that's all it took, 13 masterpieces, stolen. take a listen. >> the thieves entered the first floor and went to the blue room and stole a monet painting. and then up to the second floor in the dutch room, they stole six paintings. some of them cut out of the frames. among them, three rembrandts, including the artist's only sea scape. >> yesterday the fbi tells us the
maintains that marriage is between a man and a woman 17 years ago, he signed that into law. he now opposes the defense of marriage act and thinks that gays should be allowed to get married just as any other american should be allowed to get married. so there's a generational gap, if you will. and i think that politically speaking, a lot of republicans are beginning to say to themselves, you know what, since their stance opposing gay marriage is not necessarily popular with younger americans, they've got to see the handwriting on the wall, if you will. but it's significant, very significant with senator portman. he does this on the eve of the oral arguments that will be made before the u.s. supreme court on the defense of marriage act on gay marriage. that we expect a decision by the nine justices before the end of june. look, these justices, while they try to just look at the law, they're also impacted by public opinion, i think it's fair to say. so his decision to express the support for gay marriage i think is significant. >> and we're within two weeks of those oral arguments, too. wolf,
of the dorm rooms. the orange county bomb squad and fbi have been out here working with local law enforcement all morning long. campus officials say there's no threat to the campus community at this time but a spokesman describes this as a very sketchy situation. listen to what he says police found when they arrived at the dorm earlier this morning. >> a call came in about a fire alarm in tower one. on the way to respond to that, a 911 call in about an armed man in the tower. when police responded to the dorm room they found a victim of a self-inflicted gunshot wound. we interviewed people who had knowledge of the situation and during the search of the dorm room we found an assault weapon and emprovized explosive devices. >> reporter: a resident of the dorm found that handgun and assault rifle and we heard explosives were found in a bag. we also know the orange county medical examiner and the coroner just arrived on scene to remove that body. it is going to be quite some time before they allow students back into that tower one dorm. when they were evacuated very early this morning, they were

is that? >> there is an aggravating factor alleged in the case. you have to do it by law if you are seeking death in a case. the aggravating factor in the case is cruelty. it occurred in a particularly cruel manner and cruelty is defined as physical and mental anguish. that it was a drawn out death that he knew he was going to die. it's probably fair to argue based on the evidence in this case. there was a hearing a long time ago about this. and the order of the fayle tall wounds was reversed from what we heard. a judge determined it was cruel, but thinking the shot in the head was cruel but the defense said that's not the way the testimony came in at trial. we believe it was false testimony that the aggravating factor is based on that got us to the trial level. and this is not a death penalty case because it was not physical or mental anguish. that she intended to shoot him first. >> ago her story is based on on shot him i don't remember anything else. i don't remember all that stabbing that i must have -- her whole story goes out the window if what he says is right. >> that's
laws are involved. we'll have to wait to see what the attorney general is looking at. >> thank you, paul. >>> more now on that daring prison escape in canada. police have three people in custody including one of the escapees and reportedly they have the other one cornered. let's bring in paul dagla, live in montreal. what is the latest on the standoff right now? >> as you mentioned, to know, police at this hour telling us that second escapee that from prison has been cornered or they have him surrounded. they are negotiating with him. they have three men, three people in custody, the other escapee and two others who apparently worked with these escapees to get them out. >> how could something like this happen, escaping from a helicopter, inside a prison? >> reporter: it sound like something from a movie really and has many people here in canada, in quebec baffled. what apparently happened one, perhaps two accomplices got a helicopter pilot, somehow forced him to fly over this prison fairly low, apparently. someone was able to drop down a ladder, a rope, and those two inmates were a
. and that's fine, but they can't, under ohio law, threaten to kill someone. and we had to take action. >> it even goes further than that. it's just so dreadfully obvious, to most people who are watching right now, that you just don't do this. you just can't do this. it's morally wrong, it's reprehensible, it's illegal. and we thought we had a teaching moment yesterday when we saw the process. we watched it all unravel throughout the last two days. is this really the state of the union among kids today, or is this an aberration, what these two girls allegedly have done? >> well, you know, my wife and i have eight children. we have now 19 grandchildren. i don't know that this is the, you know, certainly, it's not where every young person is today. we know better than that. but i do think, and what i said sunday is, if we think this is a steubenville, ohio, problem, we're wrong. rapes like this, very similar to this, that arose out of a social setting, occur every friday night, saturday night, and other days of the week, not just in steubenville, but across this country. and we do have t
unwanted guns off the streets. critics say it's punishes law abiding gun owners. our question, will raising taxes on gun sales target the wrong people? maria? >> i don't know if this particular legislation will work, carol, but what i like, they are putting everything on the table in terms of trying to solve the issue of gun violence in this country, which is critical. should we focus on this? i don't think raising taxes will keep anybody that wants a gun from buying a gun. we should focus on other things also that have more bipartisan support, like the background checks and focusing on real solutions. i like this continues to be part of the debate. we need to continue to put everything on the table. >> ron. >> the real point of this, we have over a decade of silence about gun issues after al gore was defeated this is a very polarizing idea. i can see some blue states advancing it. very difficult beyond that. >> buzzer beater, 20 seconds on the clock. outrage, indignation, unrest, all because of this. the cool ranch doritos tacos locos, a much anticipated sequel to a menu favorite. customer
. let's listen a little. >> -- no one person gets to decide the law. no one person gets to decide your guilt or innocence. my question -- my question to the president was about more than just killing americans on american soil. my question was about whether presidential power has limits. lincoln put it well when he wrote "nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man, give him power." president obama who seemed once upon a time to respect civil liberties has become the president who signed a law allowing for indefinite detention of an american citizen. indeed a law that allows an american citizen to be sent to guantanamo bay without a trial. now, president obama defends his signing of this bill by stating that he has no intention of detaining an american citizen without a trial. likewise he defended possible drone strikes on americans by indicating that he had no intention of doing so. well, my 13-hour filibuster was a message to the president, good intentions are not enough. [ applause ] the presidential oath of office states "i will protect, preserve and defend th
in juvenile law, it's similar to finding of guilty in the adult court. >> reporter: all families, families of both co-defendants, the family of the victim in court, present for this ruling. and the two teenage boys who are now convicted rapists broke down when that verdict was read, and then later, before they were sentenced, they got up to apologize to the victim's family. >> and poppy, we understand the mom of the victim also had something to say in court? >> reporter: the mom spoke after court got out, don. this is very significant. this is the first time that we have publicly heard from the victim's mother. she gave an audio statement. and i want to let our viewers listen to that audio statement in full. here it is. >> it did not matter what school you went to, what city you lived in or what sports you've played. human compassion is not taught by a teacher, a coach or a parent. it is a god-given gift instilled in all of us. you displayed not only a lack of discompassion, but a lack of moral code. your decision that night affected countless lives including those dear to you. you were yo
versus an adult proceeding? >> well, under ohio law, whether it's trialed in juvenile court or adult court, it's all regulated by statute. what the ohio statute says if you're an individual who commits a felony between the ages of 14 and 18 years old, a judge can determine in certain instances whether to determine you as a chi an adult or juvenile. one of those is whether a firearm was used in the commission of the crime. what the children's records were prior to that, and obviously, there was not a firearm used in this, probably played into the judge's determination to try them in juvenile court. neither one of them had any prior trouble, and he did use that as a factor as he was trying to weigh what is next for these young men. thank you so much, paul and rachel, good to see both of you. >> thank you. good to see you both. >> and a prayer in vatican city. the pope hits the streets. he is already being called a man of the people. >> and a reminder to watch cnn's new show, the lead, with jake tapper. tomorrow afternoon, 4:00 eastern time.

is that he was party to the heller case. he is familiar with the law. i don't think he's using his senate seat uttering falsities about what the constitution says. he was making a case for the second amendment. i think what we're upset about is the tone and tenor he took with dianne feinstein, which is a fair point. >> jamaal, he's already on the winning side. this assault weapons ban will probably not get passed and people are wondering what his point is. >> yeah, his point, i think, as margaret was referring to, his point is to appeal to the tea party base. i sat with dianne feinstein. i heard her tell the story firsthand about being in the city hall as deficits go when the shootings that occurred that led to her taking the mayor's office. i think she does not need anybody like ted cruz telling her what to do. this issue around gun violence, i think we have to recognize it is different for people who come from rural areas versus people who come from urban areas. i saw first gun when i was in middle school, a kid who held it, you know, during a robbery. i think that people who live in ci
the toughest laws in the country. look at the crime and how it's gone down. and some of the people are saying on the side of stopping this practice, hey, which one is it here. or is it other factories that have nothing to do with stopping people. what they're also saying is you're replacing one crime with another crime. because for go to somebody that's innocent of a crime, a high school student on his way to school, and frisk them and search them, it has a terrible impact in and of itself is a kind of crime. >> this not only would have ram if i indications for new york city, but other cities. i know a number of other cities are considering it, as well.cit. i know a number of other cities are considering it, as well. would this ruling have ramifications throughout? >> it will. and the reason is the only time the courts look at the degree that police go too far is when there's a prosecution for a crime. in other words, john doe is charged with a crime and he's searched and his lawyers say it was illegal and it's reviewed by the courts. here the courts will look at cases where nobody is prosecu
